    Refresh Win 8 & Keep Installed Desktop Apps

    I thought fellow loungers would be interested in the following extract of a PC World article about Windows 8:

    “Finally, you can customize the refresh process by using the “recimg” command-line tool. Using recimg makes an image of your current version of Windows—including installed desktop applications—and makes that the default image when you refresh your PC. Then, when you run Refresh, you’ll still reinstall Windows from scratch, but you’ll also retain your desktop applications. You will need to run recimg occasionally if you have desktop programs that you don’t want to reinstall all over again”.

    The link to the complete article is:

    It's been long enough that I'm sure it is now down to the second or third page. Seeing it again can't furt.
